3 Tricks to Ease Foot Pain & Recover Faster!

In today's world, we are either on our feet or sitting down CONSTANTLY. But today, we will focus on our sad, tired, and overworked FEET!

Issues and injuries such as Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Shin Splints, and Arch Pain can occur and are common for your poor feet. These issues, and more, can happen when:

-You're constantly on your feet (standing, walking)

-Having to perform repetitive movements (pedaling, jumping, running)

-Tight and weak glutes, hamstrings, and calves

To help soothe those feetsies and give them some relief, here are some stretches and massage techniques that will loosen things up:

Dorsiflexion Stretch

This stretch is great for Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, and arch pain. It stretches the bottom of the foot, and can reach up to the back of the ankle, stretching out the achilles tendon and the calf muscle.

Plantarflexion/Pointed Toes Stretch

If you struggle with constant shin splints/shin pain or any pain on the top of your foot, this is a great stretch to help release the pressure and tightness that comes with those ailments.

Iced Bottle Massage

This is especially great for arch pain and Plantar Fasciitis (pain and inflammation on the bottom of the feet). Rolling the frozen water bottle back and forth on the bottom of the foot can help break up inflamed tissue and help stretch out the tight and weakened muscles.
